Please contact the Study's coordinator G Borrero or post a comment at the foot of the page. If you have any questions, just ask. Thanks!


This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

In addition, we are looking to (in)validate existing research as to whether there is a connection between the Yorks of New York and the Yorks of the South and elsewhere.

Task List

  1. Work through the FTDNA York DNA Project and get those results transcribed here appropriately.

My brother Ainsley Lee Stephens married Bonnie York-8336. I will be working on the York family line for a while. Will see if we can find some connections and grow the line further.

Good morning,

I've just stumbled across this by accident, and have no direct current link or interest in this study. However, my y-DNA haplogroup is I-FT216670, which I know is very rare (only 8 tested on FTDNA). I can tell you that my paternal ancestral line is Parkinson, and goes back to about 1700 in Lincolnshire, England.

Best wishes

John Parkinson
